Message from Dr. Belinda S. Miles: Celebrations & Milestones – September 27, 2019
September 27, 2019
Earlier this week, we welcomed representatives of Pace University to a signing ceremony celebrating our Pathways to Completion Dual Admission Agreement as well as the “Nurse Connect” Online Program Transfer Agreement. Pace is one of our top transfer partners and Westchester Community College students who earn a 3.2 GPA or better are eligible for a $25,000 per year scholarship! Pace President Marvin Krislov cited his university’s standing as the best private university in the nation for upward economic mobility for students. What a great opportunity for our transfers to have this pathway so close to home! Thanks to our faculty, staff and deans for their ongoing commitment to this and other robust transfer pathways.
Every year, Faculty Convocation serves as the venue to welcome new employees and celebrate faculty accomplishments through awards from the WCC Foundation, including recognition of Endowed Chairs. This year is especially rewarding as we welcomed 20 new faculty members along with new staff and administrator colleagues.
It is time to begin planning in earnest for 2021 when the college will celebrate its 75th anniversary. As we start to think about ways to commemorate this, we will establish a committee to help with planning. Please email Janice Adams in the Office of the President if you are interested in volunteering.
Dr. Belinda S. Miles
